Hotel Biba

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is quaint, comfortable and clean. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. My only complaint is the lack of exterior maintenance. The room interior was perfect, but the outside of the building was a little rough. Wooden privacy walls near doors were rotten and falling apart. It would have been nice to have light outside the doors as well. We came back to the room late and couldn't see our key or the lock on the door. The staff was friendly and helpful. Parking seems a bit limited.

There has been a lot of care put into the creation of this gem! Very well appointed, comfortable bed, and very clean.

Nothing fancy but quaint courtyard to hang out for breakfast area which was also very cool. Rooms super clean and freak king size bed. Decent location not far from beach. Would return.

The location is perfect -- a 15-minute drive from the airport, one block from the Intercoastal Waterway, a couple of nice restaurants across the street, several very good restaurants within a half-mile walk along Dixie Highway, and bustling downtown West Palm Beach about a mile away -- everything convenient and walkable at any time. The free breakfast was good (pastries, cereals, yogurt, fruit). My room was clean and adequate. It was sparsely furnished, and it would have been nice to have had a shelf or counter space in the small bathroom. The pool area was okay -- it could have used more and better seating, and the fact that the housekeeping closet is next to the pool meant that housekeeping carts and housekeepers congregated poolside in the afternoon.

Good location but disappointing cleanliness and room appointments. No dresser. But friendly staff and tolerable breakfast

We were warmly greeted by their attendant upon our arrival, who gave us all of the necessary details to make our stay comfortable.

Charming garden with only a few rooms surrounding it. Nice but simple breakfast included. The room had a couple of maintenance issues but not enough to not recommend the hotel.

Nice staff, room quality so so. Could have been cleaner and in better repair.

Hotel Biba was an excellent value. This hotel is much more quaint and has character than your run of the mill business type hotel. The continental breakfast was great - the pool was very nice as well. My room was spotless and comfortable and had free parking. Other hotels in the immediate area were twice the price - so this hotel is a real find. Quiet, clean, comfortable - and it feels more like an actual mini-resort. Very nice - recommended.

When I first arrived the first room was filthy they "graded me" the next room the only lamp was broken, no maid service the next day as I requested from front desk and concierge had to run me clean towels in the rain. Also the thermostat in the room was broken it was freezing. At 3 times through each night a locomotive with full whistle came through alongside the hotel and shook me up the bed was shaking. .right out of My cousin Vinnie. the movie. I had to laugh. won't be returning. The assoc. manager heard my complaints and offered me 30% off the room fee, it was not great experience I moved to the Hyatt Place downtown.

Nice friendly place with peaceful outside garden space to eat breakfast. Pleasant staff and clean rooms!

Nice little boutique hotel. We have stayed at this property 4 times. Service has gotten better but the property is starting to see some wear and tear. Bathroom could be much cleaner (mold around shower). Nice free continental breakfast. Very good location within walking distance to antique row, city place and the island of Palm Beach (2 mile radius). Always a good value.

Charming grounds, planters, brick pathways, nice courtyard seating for breakfast, stylish decor in rooms, lobby and breakfast room. Drawbacks: though the room smelled good & clean, it wasn't, cleaning staff only dropped off towels each day, they didn't make beds unless we asked. Floors were dirty, surfaces dirty. Bathroom quite adequate. The room is barely big enough for two people.

Hotel Biba was newly updated with a modern look; very sleek. Every one of the staff I came in contact with was incredible and very well mannered. The rooms were fantastic - the only complaint my husband and I had was that there are no refrigerators or microwaves in the rooms. We were stating at Hotel Biba for four days and couldn't keep anything in the room with us because we had nowhere to store it. Besides that, I loved it and it was WELL worth the price.

Upon arrival I was put in a room down the hall from the front desk area. First there were no tv remotes so it took 2 trips to the front desk before I finally had both of the two requires remotes. I know, not bad yet. Then I realized there were no bath towels so a mother quick run to the front desk, still not the end of the world. Where the horrible experience started was about 1 am, there were people talking and laughing very loud at the front desk to the point where after 20 minutes I walked out to the front desk as two women were leaving and the front desk clerked just looked at me and didn't say a word. The next morning I awoke to people talking at the front desk again. I don't know why you would put anybody that close to the front desk if you have thin walls and doors. Not sure if I can get past this horrible sleeping experience to ever go back.

The ice machine was in a weird location. Near PBI airport. Hotel was ok nothing wonderful to sing about. Clean place nice staff.

Close to the intercoastal and a mile or so from the beach. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. I used the pool and it was refreshing. The hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating. Considering the high rent district all around, this was a great and economical find.

The hotel was Nice.. The room was kind of hot called front desk and they reset it which was cool. The breakfast was A Joke though... it was boiled Eggs and Bagels and English Muffins Not like A Regular hotel Breakfast. I wish they had oatmeal even the instant one would have worked...

Great night spent at this hotel. Great value for the money with great accommodations and great service. Very clean and comfortable. I would stay here again.

Good morning Scott, Thank you very much for taking the time to post your review. I am sorry the room was not cleaned properly and the lack of dresser space in your room. We do have dressers on hand for guests who stay long periods of time at request but I am sorry you were unable to take advantage of that. I hope you give us another chance in the future. We would love to welcome you back for a better experience.

Good afternoon, I want to apologize for the inconveniences you had encountered with us here at Hotel Biba. I was actually made aware of your situation and I know my assistant manager spent a lot of time trying to assist you with your accommodations. I am glad you were able to find a property nearby during this busy season. I hope you give us another chance in the future. Thank you for staying with us!
